Techniques for FIT

  • Zero effort equals zero results over time. That's easy. 100% effort doesn't give you 100% results though. There are diminishing returns. 
  • Buy back some of your time by hiring help and outsourcing. 
  • Knowing where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow lets you evaluate alternative routes. 
  • Nobody fears a desirable future state. What they fear is the journey. 

Being Human - Why bother?

Before engaging in an endeavor, it helps to ask, "why bother?" as in, "why are we bothering to take on this project at this time?"

When coming up with an answer, work inside this framework:

Like, "why bother doing this from a business perspective? What are the business financial reasons? What are the non-financial business reasons?" And, "why bother doing this from a personal perspective? What are the personal financial reasons? What are the non-financial business reasons?"

The answers you come up with will help you communicate Focus to your team. 

Which just happens to be the first part of FIT. 

Random Stuff


I have to register a vehicle, and that requires a trip to the DMV. 

I am the first one in the parking lot at 7:50am. It's raining and the DMV doesn't open until 8, so I sit and listen to the radio. I'm the first one there and I should be in and out in under 5 minutes. I should probably stand in line, but I don't want to get wet. I mean, I don't have to be anywhere until 9am, so I can sit and relax.  

The next car pulls up, the driver nods at me and sits in her car. More cars pull in and I can see the lot filling up. The next guy pulls in, and makes a crucial decision that impacts the rest of my morning. 

He jumps out and runs to the door. First in line. 

This sets off a chain reaction. Before I know it, doors are opening and slamming shut and before I know it, I find myself at 7:53 in the morning, outside the DMV, seventh in line, getting wet, and contemplating my lack of self-control.
